Aircraft Carriers question

Recommended Posts


Heh, yeah... it comes up a bit. :tongue:

 

I've tried and tried these methods with SFP1 Oct 08 patch.

I hit fly, the plane explodes on the water where the CV should be , and the wingie say's "2 is up".

 

It looks like we're in the correct location, just no CV.

I haven't tried CVA-63 because the campaign is set in 1957 and the Kitty Hawk didn't launch until 1961, and that's noted in the data.ini.

I did up these other CV Base types to Medium instead of Small.

 

Any help? I'm stumped, again.

No.

But the Nimitz CV 68, worked in 1959. 1959 A-4b taking off with F-18s on the Deck standing by. :yikes:

I'll locate and annotate Desert_Types.ini with the CVs-11 and 14 and see what happens.

because the Nimitz start of service date is probably wrong

 

for the CVN-68:

 

[MissionData]

NationName=USN

ServiceStartYear=1975

ServiceEndYear=2050

GroundObjectRole=WARSHIP

Availability=VERY_RARE

FormationSizeBase=1

FormationSizeVariation=0

 

for CVN-75:

 

[MissionData]

NationName=USN

ServiceStartYear=1998

ServiceEndYear=2050

GroundObjectRole=WARSHIP

Availability=VERY_RARE

FormationSizeBase=1

FormationSizeVariation=0

 

 

dates and nations are incorrect in the released versions and needed correcting (notable lack of research, there)

In this case I'm using SF1 default Desert terrain.

I've reviewed both articles in the KB "Intermediate Modding" regarding Adding Cvs and I don't see any referance to "desert_types.ini".

 

Link 1 to KB

Link 2 to KB

 

What goes in the *_Types.ini?

and can we update the KB to reflect?

 

:drinks:
